Does anyone know where i can get the spacer for the 700 to bolt a 205 behind it?
advanced adapters sells kits to hook your 700-r4 up to a 205.
they only sell the short 4x4 shaft, i'm looking for the 1.5" or so spacer that makes up for the longer shaft of the 700
the short shaft is the better way to go. i have heard of poeple having problems with the spacers striping out threads because the 205 is a heavy transfer case
ive never heard that, but i have heard that if you don't use the spacer, the driveshaft will hit the pan.
i think i can get the just spacer for you.
Here is one.
I bought mine from ORD. I have the long output shaft in my 700, had to remove about an 1/8" with a Porta-Band, and it still has about 2" of engagement.
the AA shaft sucks. Only way I'd run it is if I was already going to rebuild my transmission and I was definitely going to run a doubler. Last thing I need is my front driveshaft hitting my trans pan. I run the spacer, DEEP aluminum pan and NO problems. The spacer has a footing on it with pre-threaded holes that you can use to mount it to a crossmember. With that, plus the normal t-case crossmember I dont see any problem.
I disagree. I just did the 700r4 to the NP205. I went with the AA shaft. Now I have absolutely no room to put in a 1350 CV front driveshaft because of the tight clearance between the front output and the transmission pan. Now I have to run a 1310 CV up top and a 1350 mated up down at the D60. I'm not happy at having a 1310 CV driving the D60 up front and am worried that I might explode it someday. I thought I had done my homework but now regret going with the AA shaft and not the spacer. I had my 700r4 built at a shop and I don't want to spend the bucks to re-do it.
I'd like to get my hands on one because someday I will swap out the short shaft for the longer one and use the spacer. I've had people suggest clocking the NP205 up a bit but then I lose my side mount and I'm not so sure I'd gain that much space.
this is what you are looking for
spacer part number 7Q-35A
Quick swap kit. I think its about $60.
I just sold one on Ebay for $40 and I had paid $75 for it! Try a company called Quick Swap. For exact model number search my username in the for sale, I should have pics of it in there still.
